Brass Chandelier by Gaetano Sciolari

Italy 1970s


This elegant chandelier was designed by the Gaetano Sciolari in the 70s. The lamp consists of 13 tubular socket holders in shiny chromed metal. These 13 sockets are held by rectangular rods/slats of brass. The socket holders and the rods have hardly any signs of wear or scratches. Very exciting is the combination of chrome and brass, which was unique at that time. All in all a beautiful design object!

Gaetano Sciolaris first designs in the fifties were Sputnik inspired pendants. In the 1960s he created refined, futuristic and sharp classical style chandeliers. Lines were clean and sculptural and materials such as crystal and ice glass sparkled with a volupuously luxurious coolness and he started combining brass with chrome. Gaetano Sciolari was the founder and the first president of the trade association of Italian manufacturers of lighting fixtures, the AIDI. The Associazione Italiana di Illuminazione was founded in 1958 and still exitsts today.
